The 2023 Audi Q7 will be coming with some notable changes which include a 13 hp surge in its base 2.0L Turbo I4 mild hybrid engine for a starting MSRP of $57,500. Also, pairs of all-new colors, upgraded exterior LED headlights, and a Convenience Package packed with adaptive cruise control and lane keep assist are going to be introduced across its trim lineup of Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige. While the peak towing capacity of 7,700 lbs and that superior interior will remain unchanged for the season just like the 335 horsepower V6 engine.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

The 2023 Audi Q7 offers a balanced proposition with its two powertrain variants. The dynamics recreate new emblems with top-notch adaptive air suspensions of the top-of-the-line Prestige trim. And the standard complex interior tech-ends keep the cabin intuitive. However, there are major concerns regarding its quality and reliability as the last year's J.D power rating of 72 does not do any good in its imagery. 

Apart from this, one has to take care of other expenses of the Audi Q7 2023 as well such as a maintenance fee of $6,418 for the Q7 Premium 45 TFSI and Premium Plus 45 TFSI after 5 years. This MSRP figure increases to $8,146 for the same time period for the Q7 Premium 55 TFSI and Premium Plus 55 TFSI trims along with a repairing price of $2,832 which is similar to the 45 TFSI formats. Moreover, depreciation of $38,631 at max is also possible for the Q7 Prestige 55 TFSI besides its $8,734 priced maintenance cost. 


Buying Advice

The 2023 Audi Q7 Premium Plus is the one that is the most reasonable in its standard virtue, optional package, and safety with respect to its price tag. Improved by a noticeable margin in safety features and entertainment over the Premium trim and parallel to Prestige in performance choices makes this trim the favorite one. 

Features
8.5/10

There are numerous packages on offer for the Q7- Carbuzz

The Audi Q7 2023 specs a three-trim belt beginning with Premium which has been given 19-inch 5-arm-star design wheels and Audi Drive Select. It has got a 10.1-inch dual-screen infotainment system with a 10-speaker sound system as well along with power heated front seats and Audi Virtual Cockpit Plus.

The 2023 Q7 Premium Plus MSRP of $62,200 is the next one with assets like adaptive cruise control with lane guidance and a 19-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system. And the Prestige trim costing $73,300 brings a Head-up display, Comfort Adaptive Air Suspensions, and 20-inch 5-spoke-turbine design wheels in addition.

In day-to-day driving, the Audi Q7 feels quiet, refined, supple and capable- Autotrader

The 2023 Audi Q7 screws a 2.0L turbo Inline-4 mild hybrid powertrain inside the belly which kicks in 261 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. It is available for all except the Q7 Prestige trim. And it pairs with an 8-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission in an AWD Quattro layout. 

There is an even more powerful V6 Turbo powerhouse that can thrill you with its 335 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. And it is featured in all the trims of the Q7 2023 namely Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige 55 TFSI variants with that same AWD Quattro and 8-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission.

The 2023 Q7 has been engineered to mark a 0-60 MPH acceleration of 6.7 seconds with its base I-4 engine and 5.7 seconds with its V6 beats while keeping a similar 130 MPH top speed. Moreover, its Audi Drive Select specced up with Dynamic, Comfort, Individual, Auto, Allroad, and Offroad driving modes take the feel of this exotic SUV to another level.

As per data, the Audi Q7 is almost $2,000 more expensive than the Lincoln Aviator but still, it feels a little slower than the latter by 1.3 seconds in 0-60 MPH. And Q7's base engine towing capacity of 4,400 lbs is also less than that of the Aviator by 2,300 lbs. On the other hand, the Land Rover Discovery has 1,592 lbs more towing prowess than the 2023 Q7, thanks to its extra 35 hp and 22 lb-ft torque.

Fuel Economy
8.5/10

The 2023 Audi Q7 MPG ranges from 18 MPG in the city to 25 MPG on the highway by the 2.0L I-4 engine which makes it to travel up to 562 miles with its fully filled 22.5 gallons fuel tank. Also, a combined range of 495 miles is achievable, thanks to its 20 MPG overall fuel mileage.

However, with the extra power, the V6 engine of the 2023 Q7 losses the economy as the EPA rating reduces to 18/22/20 MPG in city/highway/combined situations, resulting in a reduction of peak range by 44 miles.

Based on the economy, the Q7 compensates for its lower performance dynamics with a 71 miles better-combined range than the Lincoln Aviator. Even the Volvo XC90 is behind the Audi Q7 2023 in terms of the same combined range category by 63 miles due to its 3.7 gallons smaller gas tank size. 

 

Interior
8.5/10

With its minimalist, contemporary design matched with loads of technology and excellent comfort and build quality, the Q7's cabin is a special place- CarAndDriver

Step inside the 2023 Q7 interior and you get the power heated front seats for easy convenience, clouded with luxurious leather upholstery. The Ambient Interior Lighting adds that missing touch. And so does the optional packages like the Executive Package for the Q7 Premium Plus 55 TFSI which elaborates it with heated rear seats, 4-zone automatic climate control, and many more. The cargo capacity of 14.2 cu-ft-69.6 cu-ft is there as well for your luggage.

Extending the interior technology fronts of the 2023 Audi Q7, the Head-up display finds a place for itself inside the Q7 Prestige 55 TFSI. While the Heated Steering Wheel is bolted in from Premium Plus onwards. The 10.1-inch dual-screen infotainment system and 10-speaker sound system have been integrated as well. But the musical experience gets better inside the Premium Plus and Q7 Prestigevwith the 19-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system.

For something with three seating rows, the Q7 doesn’t look at all like a bus- Kelly Blue Book

The Audi Q7 2023 now gets some new colors on its inspiring silhouette along with updated LED headlights packed with High-Beam Assist. The shades of Carrara White, Glacier White Metallic($595), Mythos Black Metallic($595), Navarra Blue Metallic($595), and many other Audi exclusive color accents costing as much as $7,900 are on the list for you.

Also, the 2023 Q7 platform can be attached with 19-inch 5-arm-star design wheels and 20-inch 5-spoke-turbine design wheels as per trim specifics. Meanwhile, those Matrix-design LED headlights with DRL signature for the Premium Plus and Prestige trims to bring out something different persona altogether.

Going by the figures, the Audi Q7 weighs almost 309 lbs more than the Volvo XC90. While the Land Rover Discovery has 2.8 inches smaller wheelbase than the Q7. Apart from these, the gaps in the dimensions among all the rivals are mot too much to make any considerable impact on the dynamics as such. Some other exterior features are:

  • LED auto high-beam headlights
  • LED DRLs & taillights
  • Chrome bodyside moldings & Aluminum window trim
  • Dual integrated exhaust tips
  • Rear roofline spoiler
  • Chrome grille & Aluminum roof rails

Safety
9.0/10

The 2023 Q7 has not been rated by the NHTSA but IIHS has marked it with a "Good" rating in all segments except for "Poor" headlights. It also does not get in the Top Safety Pick category. Yet the standard and optional safety features of this 7-seater SUV are just way too much worthy to tackle and avoid the undesired situations. Some of them have been mentioned below:

  • Audi Pre Sense Basic, Audi Pre Sense Front, & Audi Pre Sense Rear
  • Front & rear parking sensors with surround-view camera system
  • Adaptive cruise control w/Traffic Jam Assist
  • Audi Side Assist w/ Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
  • Traffic Sign Recognition
  • Lane Departure Warning & Vehicle Exit Warning
  • Night Vision Camera

2023 Audi Q7 vs 2023 Lincoln Aviator

The Audi Q7 2023 and the 2023 Lincoln Aviator have got all the comfort and recent tech ends to give you the finest experience inside their respective cabins. We can say the same about luxury and safety as well. However, the Aviator does manage to get you more excited with its far better power curve. Hence, one has to give preference to the 2023 Aviator over the 2023 Q7.

2023 Audi Q7 vs 2023 Land Rover Discovery

The 2023 Audi Q7 is as capable in its handling and dynamics as the 2023 Land Rover Discovery. Their plush interior are also at par with each other just like their spaciousness for the 7-seaters. The availability of safety extensions is impressive as well for both of them. Therefore, one can go for either of them. 

 2023 Audi Q7 vs 2023 Volvo XC90

The 2023 Volvo XC90 features better safety stature and stands as an epitome in build quality in this segment. Its base towing capacity is also slightly better than that of the Audi Q7, thereby, giving that extra edge in utility. However, nothing much can be differentiated between the two in terms of technology and comfort upgrades. All in all, it is the XC90 that takes the lead here for now. 

 

Final Verdict

The 2023 Q7 is surely a well-designed and feature-enriched 7-seater luxury SUV but there is still a little scope for improvement in its overall performance and utility where the rivals tend to take the supremacy. Though there is nothing to do on the luxury ends and comfort stance, a slight update on the overall power curve will surely make a huge turn of tides in favor of Q7.
